Last week we focused on words with r blends. (br. cr, dr. gr, fr, pr, tr)

Focus Words: into, under

This week there will be no new words, we are going to review s, l, and r-blends.

**No spelling test this week!**

This week, students reviewed elements of fiction (characters, setting, retelling, and central message).

Big picture

Students continued to work on their animal all about book. These will be coming home at the end of the week.

Students learned to subitize, which is to identify the number of things in a set simply by quickly looking at them—not by counting them one by one. We counted by groups of ten.

Students started learning about rocks by describing their properties.

Breakfast/Lunch Menu for the Week

Remember, breakfast and lunch are FREE for all students!

A la carte snacks and drinks are now available for purchase.

You can add money to your child's account here.
